Fighting Illness

We’ve noticed a slight uptick in illness among our students and staff in the last few weeks and are taking measures to prevent further spread of the flu and other airborne illnesses.

In addition to regular daily cleaning, teachers have started wiping down doorknobs, desks, and other often-touched surfaces with Lysol. High Standard Cleaning performs general janitorial services every evening and a deeper cleaning on Fridays. Additionally for the last two weekends, the cleaning crew has completed intensive sanitizing services to help rid our campus of germs.

Here’s how you can help further prevent the spread of sickness in our school family:

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Keep your student home from school until he or she has been fever-free for 24 hours.
  • Keep your student home until he or she has gone 24 hours without vomiting
  • Wash jackets and bookbags
  • Wipe down or wash lunchboxes, water bottles, and other high-contact surfaces
